the EDIP Ecosystem

Building Strong Sovereign First Nations

We have created a unique eco-system – EDIP Group of Companies – in response to the needs expressed by First Nations, Métis and other related organizations.

This eco-system currently includes EDIP Sovereign Wealth Solutions; Okimaw Communities and HR Solutions; and the EDIP Foundation. We are constantly expanding our eco-system to meet their needs.

Our approach, informed by our advisory board consisting of First Nation leaders and Elders, has been designed specifically for communities.

We want to listen to Your Story

Every Story Is Unique.

It’s this story – your story – that clearly defines what success, financial independence and quality of life would look like for your Nation, Organization or Tribal Council. Our starting point is always with your story.  Sharing your story is vital to success and we will get to know your real priorities and what matters to you.
